Run a filter, then look at the options menu at the top right for the bulk-edit option.  You need to have the global permission that allows "bulk edit"

Create the JQL you want from Issues > Search for issues.

After that, click on Tools button > Bulk change all X issues, on the top right corner.

Follow the remaining steps.
